Former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson recently said he’d like to face his old team in the playoffs, and beat them.
One of his former teammates smiled upon hearing about Peterson’s preference.
“That sounds like A.P.,” Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs recently told the #PFTPM podcast. “That sounds like something A.P. would say. I haven’t thought about the Redskins. I don’t know if [former Washington quarterback] Kirk [Cousins] has, that’s something you have to take up with him. But that comment is so A.P. If we make it down there and we see them, it’ll definitely be exciting.”
Washington currently leads the NFC North with a 6-3 record. Minnesota sits in second place in the NFC North with a 5-3-1 mark. If the two teams meet at all this year, it will happen in the postseason.

  1. Fake news. Peterson was originally asked what it would be like if the Redskins faced the Vikings in the playoffs. He said it would be an exciting game and he hoped the Skins would win, and it would be fun if they did win.

    Presumably he would like the redskins, if they do make the playoffs, to win no matter who the opponent is.

  2. If AD has some sort of grudge against the Vikings it’s completely unfounded. They built their offense around him, made him very rich and stuck by him through his injuries and other “issues”.

  3. AP wants to get some revenge on the organization that made him rich and famous for life. Yeah, that makes sense.

  4. Vikes are the only team in NFL history to lose two playoff games. The final play against NOLA was strange to say the least. A New Orleans defensive back ducks under the Vikes receiver and wham he takes it 60 yards for TD with no time on clock.

  5. Please let the Vikings come to FedEx Field and face this year’s team of destiny. Nothing would make me happier than to see Kirk throw one back breaking interception after another to our defensive MVP #36. This is all I want for Christmas Santa.

  6. Can’t blame AP for wanting to win a playoff game against his old team at all. Although the last time he faced the Vikings with a new team (the Saints), it didn’t go too well for him (or the Saints).

    Vikings haven’t beaten a team with a winning record all season. Redskins have a winning record. You already know the outcome.
    ________

    The Vikings will have to beat multiple teams with winning records to make the playoffs, so if they play the Redskins in the playoffs, they will already have proven they can beat a team with a winning record.

    You could say the same thing about the Bears, which means one of those teams will have beaten a team with a winning record. But you said a team that hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record all season can’t beat a team with a winning record. It’s almost as if you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    The Vikings have also had one of the hardest schedules. Playing the Saints…how did the Redskins do? Same as the Vikings. Vikings had to play the Rams on Thursday night…a scenario where no traveling team crossing two timezones has won in 12+ years, a road game to Philly and Lambleau field, both tough environments to win at. Also the Redskins are in a pathetic excuse of a division. All teams suck this year. In the NFC North the worst team (The Lions) beat the Patriots.

    The whole a team hasn’t beaten a winning record is dumb because you can’t choose who is on your schedule. The Vikings have had only two chances to beat a winning team (Rams and Saints) and those are two of the best teams in the NFL. Dumb dumb dumb

    Except they didn’t lose. A win is a win idiot.

    +++++

    4 of their 5 wins have come against Arizona, the Jets, the Lions , and 49ers, and they have a loss to the Bills.

    One of the hardest schedules? not so much.
